The Southern California Gold Mine that is “LOOM” brings to the world music that drips with style, packed full of psych and soul. Sabbathian riffs with guitar work reminiscent of Billy Gibbons and Greg Allman's voice preaching tried and true. It can strike a fire in your heart, or plunge it into a grasping choke for the warmth you once knew. As the sun may set every night, LOOM is the flash of green light that might break across the sky."

Formed in San Francisco in 2007, Geographer is the moniker for Mike Deni's American synthpop/indie rock band. Deni has described his sound as being "soulful music from outer space" using analog, electronic, and acoustic elements to craft dense layers and unique sound textures. As Geographer, Deni has released three full-length albums, Innocent Ghosts (2008), Myth (2012), andGhost Modern (2015). Along with three EPs: Animal Shapes (2010), Endless Motion (2015), andAlone Time (2018). Deni relocated to San Francisco from New Jersey, after living with the aftermath of the sudden and tragic death of his sister, and then the equally unexpected death of his father a year later. While sleeping on the floor of his friends' apartment in the Haight, Deni found a synthesizer on the street and began to channel both his grief and his optimism into the songs that would become Innocent Ghosts. This theme would continue through all his music, which pits intense and emotionally probing lyrics with momentous and soaring arrangements, often featuring electric cello. The Animal Shapes EP put Geographer on the map and launched his career. Since that release, Geographer has headlined multiple national tours, performed at festivals such as Outside Lands and Firefly and toured with musical luminaries such as K.Flay, The Flaming Lips, Young The Giant, Tycho, Ratatat, Betty Who, and Tokyo Police Club. In 2018 Deni gave up his apartment in San Francisco and hopped between tours and friends' couches for the next 6 months, spending a month in his hometown in NJ, and a few weeks in Italy, where both sides of his family are from, before relocating to Los Angeles. During that time of shiftlessness, in limbo between his old and new life, Deni wrote the songs that would become the New Jersey EP. Many of the songs began in NJ in his childhood home and were finished in Los Angeles at his friend's house while looking for an apartment. "Summer of My Discontentment" and "Love is Wasted in the Dark" are the first pieces of music written during that time to be released by Deni and explore the notions of origin, nostalgia, and the metamorphosis of the dreams of the young.$13.00 - $15.00

Unlike most punk acts of the '90s who travel along punk/pop and alternative ways of the rock genre, the Murder City Devils choose to stay in control of their riffs. Keeping a strong presence of simple features of pure rock & roll, the Devils finish up showing clean yet raw compositions, supposedly connecting them to the punk style. It was in Seattle (WA) in 1996 that vocalist Spencer Moody, guitarist Dann Gallucci, bassist Derek Fudesco, drummer Coady Willis, and Nate Manny (guitar, bass) ended up forming the Murder City Devils. Later, keyboardist Leslie Hardy joined. The Devils broke up in 2001 with an incendiary farewell to their hometown crowd on Halloween night. They have since performed 4 reunion shows; two in Seattle in 2006 and two in Austin in 2007. In late 2009 the entire original lineup reformed for a series of West Coast shows which carried into a series of East Coast shows in 2010.
